 Westbay Sonship   78   Jim D.   Newport Beach, CA   "The boat resides behind a luxury private residence on a very tight canal, therefore, maneuvering in and out of the slip requires precision. One wrong move would certainly mean a collision with another boat. The Yacht Controller is a fantastic tool and locks in that 100% reliability that one would require from a wireless system. The Captain is able to operate the Yacht Controller with 100% signal lock from anywhere on the boat including the engine room! We observed 100% performance with no drop in signal between the handheld unit and the Yacht Controller transceiver for a measured the distance of 275 feet!" 
 Westbay   55   Celeste K   Roach Harbor, WA   As a female boater, I had my finest docking moment at Roach Harbor with my Yacht Controller in hand! I had to dock the boat between two boats with a few inches on each side in clearance and was able to do so all by myself as men running down the docks arrived in amazement and started to clap! It was a great feeling. I would never own another boat without one! 
 Wendon   72   Clay M.   B.C. Canada    "This is a great product , one that can be used with great confidence. "I Wish" I had found Yacht Controller sooner, could have saved a couple of repairs. LOL" 
 Viking Sportfish   50   Brian G.   Miami, FL   "When I first met you last year, I was reluctant to buy the Yacht Controller, but boy am I glad I did! It is great for owner operated vessels and even for Captains as a docking aide! When I go out with my family, my wife can handle the kids with no concern, while I dock and tie the lines. Last week I went out boating alone in rough seas and I was able to fish, dock and tie the lines all by myself! I will never own another boat without one!" 
 Viking Sportfish   61    Bob S.    Stuart, FL    "I absolutely love my Yacht Controller! Like you told me, Tony, it is a lifesaver! My wife can't thank you enough. Thank you for the wonderful product that has helped us tremendously in enjoying our Viking Sportfish!" 
 Viking Sport Fish   61   Alex C.   Key Biscayne, Fl.   "As a captain, the Yacht Controller allows me to effectively do my job and still enjoy fishing! When deep drop fishing and setting your drift, you can keep the fishing lines straight without having to be at the helm, controlling the boat with the Yacht Controller hanging around your neck. Yacht Controller is also beneficial for kite fishing. Keeping the kite's straight with the Yacht Controller in hand is a breeze. The Yacht Controller puts you in the best position to watch the kites and ensure they don't tangle all while fishing! Fish on! 
 Viking M/Y   60   Aaron F.   New Rochelle, NY   "I love my Yacht Controller! I've had it for several years and use it EVERY time I go boating! It simplifies the docking procedure and allows me to handle my 70-ton boat all alone. My wife and I go boating and she no longer has to worry about having to deal with casting off or docking procedure." 
 Viking   58’   Robert   Newport Beach, California   The Yacht Controller is probably the best option I’ve ever put on the boat. I was just docking this morning by myself and wind was blowing pretty good today. It was easy as pie! 
 Viking   70   Bob L.   San Diego, CA   "Well my Kristina 8 is safely here in San Diego. I just spent the weekend on her and operated completely alone. What a huge difference your Yacht Controller makes. Anchoring is a breeze and things like just adjusting lines at the dock (thrusters) is a piece of cake. I had to drop my wife and dog off at a hotel dock and just stood on the swim platform and eased it in with inches of movement...no problems! Moving a 70' boat around like this is almost unfair but...I LOVE IT! Huge thanks for a truly wonderful product!" 
 Viking   54   Donald G.   San Dusky, OH   "Wow! What an incredible piece of equipment to have for stern docking...to be able to leave the bridge and the controls I've been acquainted with for 35 years and travel anywhere; bow, aft deck, other side on the boat, has certainly allowed me the assurance and confidence of a smooth docking. As a matter of fact, I found myself using it more often than necessary. I ask myself often, why did I wait so long!" 
 Viking   65   Tom T.   Toledo Yacht Club Toledo, OH   "It’s the best thing I ever did, I have only one regret I should have done it when I bought the boat I waited a year. It’s like having two more people on the boat. I talked to the Owner of yacht Controller at the Boat Show and it’s a gift. I can’t be happier with it. I tell everyone to buy it don’t wait." 
 Vicem   58   Craig M.   Florida   "In 3 yrs our 58' Vicem, Nightwatch has seen over 100 marinas from Nantucket to Miami. With Yacht Controller our docking is a breeze. With only a foot or two to spare we can slide into any slip, often to the amazement of onlookers. We've even received applause." 
 Vicem   58   Harold K   Vancouver    I will admit I was reluctant to buy the system at first but boy was I glad I did! I love my Yacht Controller! The Yacht Controller has saved me more in hull damage than the cost to buy the system! Thank you for all the support. 
 Vicem   60'   Leigh W.   Stuart, FL   "I have had the system (Yacht Controller) installed on three different boats, the first in 2005 and the most recent last year (2016). I have also recommended the system to friends. I understand the unit installed in 2005 is still functioning normally. Yacht Controller has been a highly reliable addition to each of my boats. It is highly responsive and the vessel is so much easier to maneuver in any wind or current conditions with the handheld unit. Improves safety significantly. My wife and I handle our current 51’ Dettling on our own, as we did our 60’ Vicem when we installed the first one. A really terrific concept! My best Leigh" 
 Vicem   65   Leigh W.   Connecticut   "I installed the Yacht Controller on our Vicem motoryacht "Indra" three years ago. "Indra" is 65 LOA. Having the Yacht Controller installed makes docking and line handing of a boat this size very manageable and safe. We are delighted with the technology." 
 Valkyrie Yacht Sales   -   Tom P.   Islands Harbor, CA   "Our current and last vessel both have Yacht Controllers aboard. They do work well and make docking very easy!" 
 Uniesse   48   Jon W.   Cancun   "My Yacht Controller makes operating my boat a breeze. It is great! I wouldn't be without it." 
 Trawler   70   Steve W.   West Coast, FL   "I love your product. I handle my boat with my wife alone and I could not do so had I not had Yacht Controller! Thank you for all your support!" 
 Trawler   40   Gus A.    Titusville, FL   "I have a Trawler named "Summerland" and as the owner of this boat I am happy to have the Yacht Controller on board as it has made the experience amazing. Maneuvering my boat is easy and I no longer have to be concerned if someone is there to help me. I can simply walk over pick up the line and bring my boat in single handed. Yelling to my wife to tie lines is a thing of the past, a simple push and I am smoothly moving in the direction I need to go. I can spin my boat in place and all with one hand. My boat was equipped with the Yacht Controller in 2005. Here we are in 2013 and it's still going strong." 
 Tempest   92   Jorge H.   Miami   "The Yacht Controller is indispensable yacht equipment and my captain could not run the yacht easily without it." 
 Symbol   60   Philip T.   Florida   "Just a short note to say your Yacht Controller is the best! My wife and I navigate our 60' Symbol Motor yacht together. The Yacht Controller is just like having that extra set of hands that makes life, docking and close in maneuvering safe and fun."  
 Sunseeker    100   Capt. Keith B   Ft. Lauderdale, FL   I have been a captain for over 30 years and I can say I am very impressed with the overall company. You have wonderful product designed to help dock boats along with a great delivery team which provided me great service during the installation of the system! Your technician was as best as they come! You have definitely earned my business on all my boats in the future! 
 Sunseeker    60   Jacques L.   Miami. Fl   "The Yacht Controller is fantastic! I recently took the boat tot he Bahamas with my family on a 10 day trip and was able to dock the boat all alone every time! With the Yacht Controller in hand, it was simple to do! Thank you" 
 Sunseeker   75   Kevin W.    Fort Lauderdale, FL   We have had a Yacht Controller for 12 years and I won't drive the boat without it. You need to have a stable of people (I would be happy to be one), that potential customers can call and speak with!  
 Silverton   45   John U.   Ohio   "Gives me the freedom to be in any location on the boat needed to have the visibility I need." 
 Silverton   45   Jorge U.    Wisconsin   "I love the Yacht Controller! I think it is a fantastic product. It should be standard equipment on all boats brands. I would not own another boat without one." 
 Silverton   46   Ben B.   Florida   "Your product has saved me millions! Well ok, maybe not millions, but thousands in gelcoat repairs." 
 Selene   55   Collin's Marine Service    Anacortes, WA   "Hope all is well, customer is loving your unit and frankly so am I. It sure makes life easy backing a 65 boat in and tying it up single handed easy." 
 Selene   53   Nancy D.   Pacific NW   "The Yacht Controller gives me wireless control of the thrusters as well as transmission, and windlass. I love it! It enables me to be outside on deck where I have a better visibility when docking or anchoring. In late April, after the day of training on the Yacht Controller, I single-handed the two hours from Sidney in Canada to Roche Harbor in the U.S., having to first dock at customs before docking at my assigned slip. This was then repeated upon my return to Canada. The purpose of my cruise to Roche Harbor was to attend the annual Pacific Northwest Selene Rendezvous. At the final dinner I was awarded a handheld VHF for the accomplishment of single - handling. This successful cruise was a real confidence booster for me and it was wonderful for my accomplishment to be recognized."  
 Sealine   42/5   Anne A.   North Carolina   "I am the owner of a F42.5 Sealine. My husband who is the captain and I took delivery of the vessel in May 2004. The yacht controller was a part of the delivery package, and we have depended on the convenience afforded by the Yacht Controller of maneuverability of the vessel in tight quarters since we have owned the boat. As the 'first mate' or Admiral, as I prefer to be called, the smoothness of docking is much better with the Yacht Controller than without. When we are docking or leaving dock, I am usually the one scampering around securing the lines and fenders, so lurching forward or backward is always risky for the one is manning the deck. With the Yacht Controller, movements are quite easy and smooth. I would miss having the Yacht Controller on our vessel."  
 Sealine   47   Fred C.   Florida   "My wife and I are about to embark on a Great Loop Trip with our "Perfect Remedy". We use the Yacht controller virtually every time we dock and most times when we are anchoring. It has become an invaluable tool in promoting enjoyment in our boating experience."  
 Sea Ray Sundancer   -   MarineMax St. Pete, FL   St. Pete, FL   Our very own Capt. Brad bringing this beautiful yacht over to the haul out , he's standing on the forward deck controlling her with a yacht controller we just installed . I want one! 
 Sea Ray Sundancer   58   John W.   Detroit, MI   "This is my second one. It has taken the fear out of docking, and saves on fiberglass repairs!"  
 Sea Ray Sedan Bridge Models   -   Carl S.   Fort Meyers, FL   "I do lots of single-handing when I go out. Due to the unique way I secure my boat when leaving or returning from my slip I need to be in the cockpit when I accomplish these maneuvers. Enter the Yacht Controller. Now I can comfortably stand in the cockpit both when departing and returning to my slip. Even with a crew, it’s so much easier for just me to perform the dockage without assistance (and my passengers are quite impressed!). When approaching another marina or dock it allows me to maneuver the boat and handle the lines from the cockpit, while my wife handles the lines on the bow. It’s also much more precise, and I’m right there along the gunwale below, not up in the bridge with obstructed visibility. This Yacht Controller allowed me to buy a Sedan Bridge..." 
 Sea Ray Sedan Bridge   58   Robert C.   Venice, FL   "It has made a big difference in docking my boat. I have a Sedan Bridge and it is very hard for me to see when backing into a dock. Now I can just go to the swim platform to dock - much easier!" 
 Sea Ray - Sedan Bridge   58    Sea Gull   -   "I have a Yacht Controller installed on my Sea Ray 58 Sedan Bridge. I use it every time I am on the boat and I cannot imagine living without it. I have been boating for more than 40 years and hold a USCG Masters license. I have taught sailing and boat handling since I was 18. When we bought Sea Gull, we looked at a lot of options for a second helm station. The Yacht Controller seemed to be the most elegant, versatile system on the market. We don't have to go into the electronic versus mechanical argument since Sea Gull already had electronic primary controls. The only leap of faith was the wireless function. We also looked at wired controls, both fixed position and with a long cord, but the wireless seemed more appropriate for us. It's usually just two of us operating the boat. We often have guests, but it is rare that we have people who can help handle the boat. The first place the Yacht Controller is helpful is when anchoring. I bring the boat to the position where I want to anchor and stop. I then walk to the bow and begin to lower the anchor. With the Yacht Controller in hand, I can bump the engines into reverse as the anchor chain pays out. Once the anchor is down and the right amount of scope is out, I can give the boat a good burst of reverse thrust to set the anchor. When it's time to weigh anchor, the process is reversed. I can be at the bow with a foot on the windlass control, a hand on the Yacht Controller and the wash-down hose in the other hand. I bump the boat forward and bring up the anchor washing with fresh water as I go. Once the anchor is aboard, I can use the Yacht Controller to hold the boat in position while I get back to the bridge. Docking is the place where the Yacht Controller really shines. At the very least it allows me to see the port side of the boat as we approach a dock. I am also free to move to the front of the fly bridge, to get a clear view below the bow or even to descend to the cockpit. Having this freedom of movement allows me to both control the boat and handle dock lines, essential for single-handed or even short-handed operation. Remember, that with a boat of this size, close is not good enough. With even a little wind or current it is almost impossible to move the boat by manual brute force. You cannot haul the boat fore or aft along the dock or pull the bow or stern line to move the boat closer to the dock. All movement is done with engines (and bow thruster) in a slow, purposeful way. The Yacht Controller allows me to be in total control. " 
 Sea Ray & Meridian Yachts   -   Stuart H.    Cape Coral, FL   "I was a two time Yacht Controller owner but recently went with a pod driven boat and opting not to go with a conventional shaft driven boat and Yacht Controller. I can now say I wish I had never done so! The pod's make it difficult to maneuver the boat in tight quarters often requiring lots of throttle to move the boat a fairly short distance. In addition, you have the pod's equipment vulnerable to being damaged mounted underneath the boat. I recently damaged a pod by lightly hitting bottom and resulted in $28,000.00 in repair costs per pod as opposed to servicing a bent propeller! I am now purchasing a Sea Ray Sundancer knowing full well the Yacht Controller will provide the necessary control I need when docking! Thank you all for the support throughout the years! The Yacht Controller is a great product for which I rely heavily. The big advantages for me of the Yacht Controller over pods, is that it provides me the ability to single hand a larger boat without being at the helm. No pod driven boat can accomplish that! Hence, my confirmation of Yacht Controller's compatibility with the Sea Ray Sundancer prior to confirming the boat purchases! Thank you again" 
 Sea Ray   48   Virgilio C.   Venezuela    "Esto, es nada mas que una carta de agradecimeinto. Por el asobrozo Yacht Controller que uds. Ofrecen la verdad que es incredible. La posibilida que este brinda a la hora de atracar en el muelle y poner gasoline al barco. Una pesona sola puede, lanzar un cabo sin tener que estar corriendo. Teniedo la posibilidad de caer al agua. O de sufrir una accidente. Esto no tiene otra palabra para describirlo, sino simplemente marabilloso. Es un product excepcional. La gente se preocupa en poner tantas cosas en el barco que no usan, y el Yacht Controller es algo que realmente todo barco deberia tener. Y mas si quieres las privacidad de no tener a un ayudante o marinero abordo!"  
 Sea Ray   42   John W.   Illinois   "I've had my Yacht Controller since the Spring of 2004, and I love it. I have a bridge boat and prefer to dock stern in, but have zero visibility aft of the boat from the helm station. With the Yacht Controller I simply walk to the rear of the bridge where I have full visibility and am able to dock with ease. While docking with the Yacht Controller, I am often greeted with shouts of "That's cheating!" from my fellow, jealous dock mates. It has also proven to be helpful with docking in rough weather conditions. I have docked in winds of up to 35 mph, in one take. You can't defy the laws of nature, but the Yacht Controller helps you cheat them a little. By allowing you to get into a better vantage point on the boat, you can see the effects of the wind on your approach more readily, and can make adjustments before it's too late. Docking has been described as a "controlled crash", but the Yacht Controller helps put a lot more control into the equation." 
 Sea Ray   40   Raymond M.   New York   "I am your number one fan! I will never own another boat without a Yacht Controller!" 
 Sea Ray   51   Ed. F   NY and FL   "I have had a Yacht Controller for almost two years on a 51 foot Sea Ray. The YC is an exceptional product that allows me to control the boat from any location on board. This is particularly important to me for docking as I often bring the boat into the slip alone. It allows me to move the boat in any direction while securing lines. The Yacht Controller is a valuable tool on any boat but a necessity on boats with limited or obstructed visibility. It can also be used from the dock to aid in securing your final lines. I have used it in many tight slips and in different marinas up and down the East Coast. The company also offers very good support to answer questions and tutorials. It is a worthwhile purchase that you will not be disappointed with." 
 Sea Ray   48   Virgilio C.   Venezuela   "This is a thank you letter. The Yacht Controller, truthfully is incredible! There are no other words to describe it, but simply wonderful, it is an exceptional product! The fact the Yacht Controller offers complete control in the palm of your hand when docking, fueling, tying lines without having to run or rely on others or avoiding accidents makes for an amazing product! People worry about investing in additions to their boats they end up not using, this is not the case with Yacht Controller. Yacht Controller is something that every boat should really have!"  
 Sea Ray   59'    Steve R.    Northport, NY    "I could not be more happy with the Yacht Controller - iThruster 200 POD promotion package you installed on my Sea Ray with Zeus Pods! I love the system. The added bow thruster has enhanced my ability to handle the boat effectively! I resort to the Yacht Controller for all my docking needs. Thank you for the packaged system provided!" 
 Sea Ray   52   Richard C.   FL   "The [Yacht] Controller is great! It allows me to do many things single handed and also be more help to my first mate (my wife). The biggest benefit is how it allows me to move to an area which provides better visualization of the stern when backing into a tight slip or similar as there are many blind spots on my bridge. It is also cool and everyone on the dock is always impressed with the technology. I would definitely recommend!  
 Sea Ray   61   Scott B.   Pensacoloa, Fl   "I purchased the Yacht Controller in January 2008 and remain a fan of the product today. I talk to boat owners all the time about the product; people are always impressed with the ease and simplicity when I dock for fuel or just an overnight stay. I am amazed at the number of boat owners that have not heard of the Yacht Controller. I own a 610 SeaRay Sundancer and the Yacht Controller allows me to operate the boat, dock and tie up without assistance, it makes big boating easy. I was concerned about service and follow up after the sale since I live in Pensacola Florida, not a problem. Good news, the product has performed flawlessly and follow-up has been awesome both in person and online. I would not be without the Yacht Controller!" 
 Sea Ray   65   Chris B.   Waban, MA   "My Yacht Controller is working great! It has made docking my boat much easier!" 
 Sea Ray   58   Jeffrey S.   Connecticut   "Yacht Controller has made it possible to easily dock my Sea Ray 58 Sedan Bridge single-handed! Even when we are not shorthanded it allows me to leave the helm station to handle lines and to be on deck while still in full control of the boat. My wife hates to handle the anchor chain and windlass and the Yacht Controller allows me to be on the foredeck and still "at the helm" to move the boat at will. There is no more yelling aboard my boat thanks to Yacht Controller!" 
 Sea Ray   60   David B.   Lexington, KY   "I just wanted to share with you and your people what a pleasant experience I had ordering the yacht controller and installation. Ordering, delivering and installing were done exactly when promised and the installer did a thorough job of explaining the use of the remote controller. This is an excellent aid in docking and moving around the harbor where I keep my 60 ft. Sea Ray Sundancer. I have a blind spot on the starboard rear that had caused me docking problems on more than one occasion, but with the yacht controller this problem has been completely eliminated. One person can effectively handle the 60 ft. boat with the yacht controller with no problems. I would highly recommend this product to anyone that may be considering a remote control device. 
 Sea Ray   54   Richard N.   New Jersey   "I had the opportunity to use the Yacht Controller this weekend when we went to a less than familiar port. I was very pleased with the way that it worked. The wireless switch makes turning it on a breeze. I was asked by one dock hand if I was playing video games."  
 Sea Ray   58   Eni O.   Johns Island, S.C.   "I have bought a lot of upgrades for my boats over the years, not one of these upgrades has pleased me as the Yacht controller. It has improved my boating/docking confidence. The system is very responsive, easy to us and have never had a problem with it for two years now. It was the only upgrade I agreed to install in my most recent boat. This system as far as I am concerned, is a must have."
